We are now officially several days into fall! It will probably be another week or two before we go to get our real pumpkins, but today, we made a paper pumpkin.

- Construction Paper (Orange, Green, and White)
This pumpkin craft is super easy and has no prep work other than gathering the materials. To start, I had my toddler tear up the orange construction paper. Next, I gave her the green to tear up.
After the paper was torn, I set it aside and gave her the glue bottle. I told her to make a circle with the glue. If your child is a young toddler, you may need to guide their hands for this step!
Next, I gave her the orange construction paper to cover the glue.
To finish, I helped her put some glue on the top of the pumpkin and then gave her the green paper she tore to glue on.
This simple pumpkin took about 10 minutes and is a great way to encourage fine motor skills!
Little learners often enjoy an activity or craft more when it is paired with a book!
